How many with Hughes syndrome are also positive for heliobacter pylori?

Diagnosed with APS in Jan. i am trying to build my knowledge of the disease and treatments, I keep finding facts related to others but not tied to hughes syndrome directly. One of those is positive h- pylori appearing in many posts. I too have +h-pylori. I am just wondering if its tied to hughes directly or just a coincidence?

Curious, but I was Helicobacter Pylori positive a few years ago. Fortunately, my brilliant Rheumatologist Dr Colaco ran a battery of tests when I was referred to him and promptly discovered I was suffering from this. I was put H. Pylori eradication therapy and sure enough I was soon cured of that. I still take a small dose of Lanzoprazole to this day as a preventative measure.
